Creamy Chicken Chipotle Cups & Mexican Chop Salad

We just had our housewarming party/Cinco de Mayo party and I decided to try some new recipes so where do you go to find great recipes but pinterest of course! I found this recipe for chicken chipotle cups but I wanted something creamy so I altered the recipe so below is the recipe I made up and everyone thought they were delicious and wanted the recipe

Creamy Chicken Chipotle Cups
 Serves ~30 cups

  • 30 wonton wrappers
  • Pam Spray
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar-Jack cheese (or other favorite cheese)-divided
  • 1-1/2 cup cooked chicken, shredded or small-diced (I used rotisserie chicken for ease)
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red bell peppers, diced(I used the ones packed in water)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp. chipotle powder
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Fit 1 wonton wrapper into each muffin cup coated with cooking spray (I used regular size muffin tin not the mini muffin tin) press the wrappers carefully down into the cups so they hug the sides. Spray the wrappers with pam spray as well. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of cheese in the bottom of each wrapper (my daughter helped with this part and thought it was fun)  Bake at 350ยบ for 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
Combine remaining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl along with the remaining 3/4 cup of shredded cheese, mix well, season to taste. Place about 1 Tblsp of mixture in each wonton cup close to serving (so the cups stay crisp)-can be made about 1-2 hours prior to serving.


Cooked with cheese on bottom

 I also made a delicious chop salad I found on Pinterest and altered I didn't use their dressing either I made this copy cat recipe for Cafe Rio's Tamatillo Dressing

Mexican Chop Salad

Sliced Red, Yellow, Orange and Green peppers arranged on plate
Rinsed and drained canned black beans (cold)
Marinaded Spicy Carrots
Roasted corn (I used a bag of frozen corn sauteed it in a frying pan with a little olive oil, and added salt to taste, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp chipotle powder and 1 tsp cumin.)
I put chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, and grated cojita cheese for people to add as they wished. 
I wanted to add avocado and jicama but I ran out of space on the plate and could not find jicama.
